This morning we left Surprise at 8:00 a.m., driving north and west on Hwys. 60 and 93.  Just west of Hoover Dam we took Lakeshore Drive north through the Lake Mead Recreation Area.  This is a two-lane paved road that begins just west of Hoover Dam and bring you to I 15 well north of Las Vegas, skipping all those busy freeways.

The scenery was spectacular!  Dry desert, with intriguing colours on the hillsides.  I got out my camera, but just too late to catch the best colours.  Not much traffic at all and good paved road.  Well, we will certainly use this bypass of Las Vegas whenever we come this way.  I would show some of the pictures, but the camera is in the car and I don't care to go out in the rain to get it.

Somehow or other it seems that our drive through Salt Lake City always involves rain.  Remember when we were driving south in October?

Once we are on I 15 the drive should be easy, but the last hour was dark, rainy and busy.  AWFUL!  We were very grateful to find a room in a Days Inn in Provo, Utah.  Tomorrow morning, quite early, say between 7 and 9 a.m. we plan to get through Salt Lake City.  The rest of the drive is fine.  We just hope for clear roads and decent weather.

Onward to the North lands.
